Money in the Final Fantasy universe is called gil. Gil is acquired by defeating enemies and by selling items from your inventory in stores. You can repeat certain missions in order to farm ffxiv gil at a faster rate. In Final Fantasy XIV, gil can be spent on items and equipment upgrades.
Quests are the lifeline of every adventurer that brings his first class up in these harsh environments. A lot of quests do not only reward you Gil, but also give you the choice of choosing another item – among them often Allagan Pieces, which can be exchanged for Gil. Make sure to check if you can’t get the equipment from the quest reward cheaper on the Market Board!
2. Challenge Log
When you reach level 15, you will be able to unlock the Challenge Log by doing the quest “Rising to the Challenge”. The challenge log will give you a lot of little challenges, a lot of them coming with a monetary reward, and they reset every week. If you do all the challenges at level 50, that means 50.000 Gil extra in the bank – that’s nothing to sneeze at!
Ahhh, crafting. The gift that keeps on giving. Some players just stop levelling their crafters, because it can be rather expensive, unless you farm everything needed for it yourself. But it pays off in the end. Creating low-level high-quality items will become a cinch, and other starters will prefer them to get their own craft levelled more quickly.
This is a no-brainer. All you do is pick up items, and pretty much all of it you can sell or, if you have the crafting class for it, craft into possibly better-selling items. Make sure to do your research on the Market Board!
Next to rewarding rare equipment (which means you don’t have to spend Gil on it), finishing a dungeon can also net you a nice sum of Gil and rare items to craft with. And when you reach level 50, you will also gain Tomestomes, which you can exchange for crafting materials that can sell very well and rather expensive!
6. Market Board
There are players who have made a fortune without ever leaving the safety of the city. They spend their time with the Market Board, observing the ebb and flow of prices, buying low and selling high. Will you be able to keep up?
